Russians love dogs. Easily the most beloved of the famous Manizer sculptures at the Ploshchad Revolyutsii metro station in Moscow is that of the dog. There are some seventy sculptures in the ensemble that represents the workers, athletes, farmers and miners who helped build the Soviet Union. But star of the show is the little bronze dog that stands alert next to a frontier guard. Many are the Moscovites who touch the dog's nose on their way to work every morning.
